Origins of the Pentagram:
A five-pointed star, encased by an outer circle. Adopted by the first pagan practitioners it is always seen with its apex pointing upward toward the Divine.
The earliest known use of this sacred symbol can be found around 3500 BC at Ur of the Chaldees in Ancient Mesopotamia. In later periods of Mesopotamian art, the pentagram was used in royal inscriptions as a symbol of imperial power extending out to "the four corners of the world".
The pentagram was also used by the Hebrews as a symbol of Truth and for the five books of the Pentateuch (The first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures).
In Ancient Greece, the geometry of the pentagram and its metaphysical associations were explored by the Pythagoreans who considered it an emblem of perfection. It was called the Pentalpha.
Early Hindu and Buddhist writings seem to share Pythagoras' view of the star and it's symbology. The Gnostics saw the pentagram as a 'Blazing Star'. Sharing it's symbology with the crescent moon it was related to the magik and mystery of the nighttime sky or the mysteries of the dark.
Celtic Druids saw the pentagram as a symbol of the Godhead. Celtic Pagans saw the sacred nature of five or the important nature of "five-ness" in many things. Which is reflected in much of their symbology. It's also important to note that these Celtic traditions provide the foundation for much of modern Paganism practised today.
Early Christians attributed the pentagram to the Five Wounds of Christ and from then until medieval times, it was a lesser-used Christian symbol. Prior to the time of the Inquisition, there were no 'evil' associations to the pentagram. Rather it was a form that implied Truth, religious mysticism and the work of The Creator. Emperor Constantine I, used the pentagram, together with the chi-rho symbol (a symbolic form of the cross) in his seal and amulet. However, it was the cross (a symbol of suffering) rather than the pentagram (a symbol of truth) that was used as a symbol by the Church.
